(Received 23d.)
 

On the 16th instead enemy, 800 strong occupied Pollard. After burning government and railroad buildings, retreated in the direction they came. They were pursued thirty miles, losing a portion of the transportation, baggage, and supplies, leaving many dead negro troops on the road. Our forces, commanded by General Liddell, acted with spirit and gallantry.
